Up Against the Wall Documentary to Revisit Prescott Mural Controversy

Prescott may not be a large town, but it made big news when a local mural became the impetus for a national discussion about the intersection of race and public art in Small Town USA. Though the original conflict erupted three years ago, public art in Prescott is still feeling the effects.

A small group of Arizona creatives led by Jacob Devaney of Culture Collective is working on a film, titled Up Against the Wall, to document the controversy and its lasting impact.
